Eyes with Astigmatism have corneas that are shaped more like an rugby ball than like a soccer ball. This causes the light rays to bend differently across the corneal surface. As a result, the lightrays do not intersect in one sharp focus point but rather form several focus points, either before or behind the retina. Images are defocused and distorted.
Astigmatism correction makes all the rays of light focus at the same distance so that they all fall correctly on the retina.
